King of Prussia, PA – PECO Energy is planning to close Matsonford Road between Montgomery Avenue and Hillside Avenue in Upper Merion Township, Montgomery County, on Wednesday, March 31, through Saturday, July 31, for gas main installation, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today. 

During the 24/7 closure, northbound motorists will be directed to use Old Gulph Road, Route 320 (Spring Mill Road), U.S. 30 (Lancaster Avenue) and northbound Interstate 476, westbound Interstate 76, and Route 320 (Trinity Lane).
